What causes eczema? – The possible causes of eczema

Have you been diagnosed with eczema or do you suspect you have eczema?

Maybe your baby or child has eczema?

Eczema is often linked to allergies and sensitivities and I’d like us to go through the possible causes of eczema. 

I’ve been treating eczema for nearly 20 years and this is what my experience has taught me. The location of the eczema can give us some indication as to what is causing it. 

Do you have eczema all over your body or just in some areas?

If you get eczema all over your body it is often linked to food sensitivities and allergies. 

The most common culprits can be dairy, gluten, sugars, eggs, soy, salicylates and artificial preservatives, colors and flavors. [See also our Salicylate Food List]

  

Have you heard of salicylates before?

Salicylates are a naturally occurring chemical found in many fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and spices. Acetylsalicylic acid is what aspirin is made of.  Salicylates is a common allergen linked to eczema, asthma and hay fever like symptoms.

  • If you get eczema just on certain parts of your body, it may be a reaction to food or an environmental allergen. 
  • If the eczema is on your feet, ankles and lower legs, it may be due to a reaction to grass or weeds. This is common with children who play outdoors.
  • If the eczema is behind your knees and on the inside of your elbows or in the folds of the skin for babies, it is often associated with a sensitivity or an allergy to yeast and gluten. 
  • If you get little red bumps on your chest, abdomen and back, you may have an allergy to dust and dust mite or you are reacting to your laundry detergent or moisturizer.
  • If you get eczema around your eyes or on your eyelids, it can be due to food, makeup or pollen, but if it’s all over your face then it is usually food related. 

  

Again, salicylates is a common allergen that causes eczema that is on the face and particularly around the mouth. 

If you get eczema on your hands, please check what products only touch your hands. Could it be latex gloves, dishwashing detergent, cleaning chemicals or hand cream that are causing your symptoms?

  

Do you get eczema in areas I haven’t mentioned? Please let me know if I missed anything and I’ll reply with possible allergens that are contributing to your eczema. 

I hope this gives you a bit more knowledge about what could be causing your eczema. If it is something you can avoid, then please do so and see if that makes a difference. 

If it is something that is hard or impossible to avoid, please know that it can be treated. 

Eczema can be so unpleasant.

It can make it hard to have a good night’s sleep due to extreme itchiness, it can easily get infected and it can make one feel very self conscious if the eczema is in visible places. 

What have you done to help clear it? 

I can help determine what is causing your eczema and treat it. 

It doesn’t take long to see results. Here are some before and after photos of my clients.

Testimonials

Lauren, Washington state, USA

Tomaya's method of healing has produced amazing results. I was having debilitating reactions to a variety of foods at almost every meal before working with Tomaya. Since Tomaya's treatments, I have been able to enjoy foods containing salicylates, amines, and dairy again, with no reaction. I experienced significant improvement after the first session. Her approach is gentle, yet effective. I am grateful that I found her!   Lauren, Washington state, USA

Hi Tomaya, you treated my little girl many years ago for allergies and asthma. She only needed the one treatment for salicylates and she has been free of issues since, so thank you!

There is no other way to describe this other than Magic. At first, I couldn't get myself to believe that distant healing can work, but apparently it's worth trying new things. Before I started these treatments, I had a sensitive bowel. I had symptoms like bloating, heaviness and stomach pain after eating and after just 3 treatments, I'm feeling significantly better. The bloating has gone down, the heaviness is barely there and the stomach pains are a lot better. I have been treated for salicylates and Tomaya also worked on my digestive system. I strongly recommend to keep an open mind and try this therapy.

After avoiding dairy for years, I now have the occasional splurge and don’t need to be looking for the nearest toilets. Thank you.

My physical and emotional health have improved dramatically since you started treating me. I have been suffering from Colitis and its not very pleasant associated symptoms. The treatments from far totally work! My problems are disappearing and I know this is a journey and there is a lot to treat, but I’m filled with excitement at the possibility of healing entirely. I can’t recommend you enough! Thank you!!!

Having had a major flare up of ulcerative colitis in Aug 2015, which resulted in 12 days in hospital and 2.5 months of some very strong conventional drugs (Oral and infusion) I was only progressing very slowly.My specialist was strongly suggesting removal of the large intestine, so I looked for alternatives. We remembered having had great success with treating my son's eczema with Tomaya from Allergy Field. After the first treatment I noticed a significant improvement in symptoms and it got even better after the second treatment. This was backed by having had two sigmoidoscopys (Either side of Tomaya's treatment). The specialist stated after the first one there was " serious ulcerative colitis" and one month after, second test "mild inflammation, no signs of ulcers or bleeding". Between the scopes I had two treatments with Tomaya and I believe this has had a huge effect on my symptoms. Thank you!!

Surprised and happy to find I felt greatly improved the following day- despite my being skeptical about the treatment. I haven’t changed anything else in my diet or my environment and 10 days later, I am pretty much symptom free. Thank you.

My 6 year old son has been complaining of severe stomach pains after eating. We’ve been to several specialists, but they couldn’t find anything. His pains are completely gone after one treatment. Thank you.

My daughter has had severe diarrhea from a very young age. She also gets red spots around her mouth and she throws up occasionally after food. I tried to eliminate what I thought was causing her symptoms, ut didn't have much luck. We had one treatment with Tomaya done via distance 2 months ago and there has been no diarrhea or skin rashes around her mouth since.
